Fax confirm return of Grix

Halifax have confirmed the signing of Warrington forward Simon Grix on a one-year deal.

The West Yorkshire club swooped for his signature after he was released from his contract by the Wolves, who have decided to keep him on the books as part of their performance team.

Grix, who was born in Halifax, started his career at his hometown club before moving to Warrington in 2006. In his nine-year stint with the Wolves, Grix won the Challenge Cup three times, a League Leaders’ Shield and started in both the 2012 and 2013 Grand Finals.

The talented utility has suffered a number of serious injuries throughout his career, including a horrific double fracture of his leg last year that saw him miss the whole of the 2015 season.

League Express understands Halifax beat a number of Super League clubs to bring Grix to back to The Shay.

His return to the Championship club comes a week after fellow Halifax-born player Jacob Fairbank signed for the 2016 season.
